  1. Rwanda June 2020 We hosted Algeria in the penultimate game of the AFCON qualifying group stage, and they were once again too strong running out comfortable 2-0 winners. To round off the international break we travelled to Senegal and shocked the hosts 1-1 in a thrilling friendly, which I think really shows how far we've come in the last 12 months. The Gambia got the win over Sierra Leone, which gives us a pretty simple equation heading into our final group stage game against them. Win or draw, we qualify for AFCON. Lose, and the dream is over. I'm optimistic we can
  2. Rwanda March 2020 I knew these two matches would be absolutely pivotal if we wanted to qualify for AFCON and the boys did not let me down. The Gambia looked dangerous after blowing away Sierra Leone and trailed early against them before easing away to a 3-1 win. The trip to Freetown also loomed as a tough match-up but we again won 3-1, only denied a clean sheet by a 94th minute consolation goal. 33 year old Meddie Kagere has firmly established himself as my best striker with three great goals over the break, and winger Patrick Sibomana was great value with a goal in both
  3. Rwanda November 2019 We kicked off our AFCON qualifying campaign by knocking off Sierra Leone, who appeared to be our biggest challengers for the second place spot that will secure our place in the tournament. We dominated all game and were perhaps unlucky to only win 2-1, but a win's a win. Against Algeria we were hoping for some sort of positive result but the North African giants showed us that we're not quite ready to battle with the big boys. Riyad Mahrez was unsurprisingly dominant in the 4-0 drubbing. The Gambia have actually proven to be a better team t
  4. Rwanda October 2019 We played some friendlies during October, hosting our rivals Uganda and then accepting an invitation to fly over to the Indian Ocean island of Reunion. We were exceptional in both games, keeping two clean sheets, and we made the most of our chances to obliterate our close rivals who are significantly higher up the rankings than us. I finally had the chance to see how well Djihad Bizimana could play and he didn't let me down. We've also received our AFCON Qualifying Groups, with Algeria, Sierra Leone and The Gambia drawn as our opponents. Wit
  5. Rwanda September 2019 We dominated both legs against Djibouti, and although we conceded some silly goals, the 9 goals were more than enough to see us across the line. Winger Eric Iradukunda bagged a brace in both games, and was our top performer, whilst Rachid Kalisa was an absolute general in central midfield. Our star player Djihad Bizimana missed the squad through injury so we'll only get better from here. We've now been drawn in the second round of the World Cup qualifying, where we'll face The Gambia, Ivory Coast and our rivals DR Congo. Only the top team
  6. I immediately applied for the national team jobs available to me and the first one to approach me was Rwanda. I was happy to accept their offer and jump straight into my first job in international management. Rwanda are a small, landlocked nation in the Great Lakes region of Africa with a population of about 12 million. The country is most notoriously known for the 1994 Rwandan Genocide but since then the country's economy has developed and they have one of the lowest corruption rates of any African nation. They are also one of just two countries where you can visit wild silverback
  7. Managing international sides has always been an enjoyable experience for me, I love the aspect of building a squad throughout a qualifying campaign, unearthing potential stars for the national team, the cut throat nature of tournaments. I've found it difficult to really sink my teeth into a save recently so I've decided to embark on a journeyman save in the international sphere, something very few managers IRL have ever done. I will be starting as an unemployed manager with reasonable attributes and taking the first job that becomes available for me. I have loaded the top 5 European leagu
  8. 6th season of the save, 2nd season in the Vanarama National League, and we go up as champions! Into the Football League now, and the club is fully professional. Not bad for my Welsh-only team.
  9. Finished my 5th season and my 1st in the Vanarama National. Managed to secure a top half finish but our end of season form was worrying, and we were one of the worst defences in the league. Still, a decent foundation to build upon and at stages we looked like we might have a shot at the playoffs. I'll be able to attract some better players this off-season hopefully, now that we've established ourselves. In better news, we were outstanding in the cups and thanks to our runs in them we managed to turn a £300,000 negative balance into a £300,000 positive balance. Merthyr Town got its f

    Regen Brothers

    I have literally never seen regen brothers in my years of playing Football Manager, is it even a feature? There's countless examples of brothers in world football and it would be a nice touch if a younger brother came through the intake a few years after the older brother, or in a rare case, twin brothers come through at the same time.
  11. 1st Half of Season 1 | 2019/20 | Palmerston Rovers | Norzone Division One My manager starts with no coaching badges, no real footballing experience. Just a young up-and-coming junior coach given the chance to manage a previously unsuccessful club in Palmerston Rovers. The low reputation of the club and pitiful scouting range means I have virtually no one wanting to sign for me but then one day a Sydney FC trialist popped up on my scouting screen and I was able to offer him terms. In my headcanon, Ricardo Campos is visiting Darwin for an extended holiday and has decided to
  12. In FM20, I want to try a hyper-realistic challenge. That is, if I really was a 19 year old starting my managerial career, where would I be most likely to start and where would I go? In my case, at age 19, I was living in Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia, and as such, I will start off as manager of Palmerston Rovers Football Club, a club that I actually played for as a junior. Palmerston Rovers will start in the Norzone Division One, the second tier of football in the Northern Territory and a part of the fourth level on the Australian pyramid, although they are
  13. Hey @Weiry do you have any clubs set up in the database to produce regens of a different nationality? Might be a cool addition for some of the smaller clubs who are very ethnic-based. For example, in the Northern Territory (the league I'm most familiar with), Garuda is primarily Indonesian players, Darwin Hearts is Nepalese, Palmerston Rovers is Irish etc
  14. First game in the National League against an established top half finisher and we do this. 22 shots, 12 on target and 5 goals from just 39% possession, and with captain Rhydian absolutely dominating. He's now wanted by Championship sides Sunderland and Walsall. Don't want to get too carried away but we'll win every game this season.
